BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Close relations between leukoaraiosis detected by computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging and stroke, particularly lacunar infarction, have been reported. We studied whether leukoaraiosis is related to long-term prognosis for patients with lacunar infarction. METHODS We examined monthly 215 patients with lacunar infarction(More)
We report a 52-year-old man with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura accompanying acute oculomotor nerve palsy. At autopsy, intraneural hemorrhage was found in the cavernous portion of the oculomotor nerve. Intraneural bleeding as well as extraneural compression by hematoma formation should be considered as a cause of neuropathies occurring in patients with(More)
A 41-year-old man with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who developed pelvic inflammation due to perforation of a giant rectal ulcer is described. The patient presented with persistent diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever without development of disease activity of SLE. Endoscopic and radiological examinations revealed a perforated giant ulcer on the(More)
Cerebral ischemia has been proposed as the etiology of transient global amnesia. Recently, however, migranous and epileptic etiologies have attracted attention. A 56-year-old man had transient global amnesia and the next day began to display symptoms of meningoencephalitis. Herpes simplex encephalitis was diagnosed based on the titer of herpes simplex virus(More)
BACKGROUND Little information from prospective clinical trials is available on the influences of surgical approaches on postoperative body compositions and nutritional status. We designed a prospective non-randomized trial to compare postoperative chronological changes in body composition and nutritional status between laparoscopic and open distal(More)
To investigate the pathophysiology of muscle contraction headache (MCH), several parameters of inflammation were evaluated in 48 patients suffering from MCH, and compared with 50 healthy control subjects: erythrocyte sedimentation rate; C-reactive protein; white blood cell count; immunoglobulin (Ig) G, A, M; and complement component 3(C3) and C4. Serum C3(More)
We studied the diagnostic significance of immunohistolochemical staining and immunoglobuline gene rearrangement of jumbo-biopsy specimen from 14 patients with stomach lesions which were difficult to distingwish between reactive lymphoreticular hyperplasia (RLH) and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (MALT lymphoma). We also investigated Helicobacter(More)
